Vicki Anne Coffee

April 29, 1948 — May 12, 2022

Vicki Anne Coffee, ”Grams,” was called to glorious rest and into the arms of her Savior on May 12, 2022, surrounded by her large and cherished family. Vicki was born April 29, 1948, in Fort Worth, Texas to Marjorie Trisler and Robert Henry LaBrier who proceeded her in death. She was also preceded in death by Bill Zaczek who adopted her. Additionally, she was preceded in death by her infant son, James Paul Coffee.

While attending Arlington Heights High School in Fort Worth, she met and fell in love with her loving and devoted husband James Shannon Coffee and they started their beautiful journey together. They resided in Fort Worth for the first few years of marriage before moving to Weatherford, Texas where they call home. Grams interests were centered around family, homemaking, and being the loving caretaker of her family. Her home was her castle, and it was where she reigned supreme. It was where she loved to be and where she felt the most fulfilled. Family and many friends have memories of piling on the big “family” bed for laughter, counseling, and sharing the events of the day. She was a member of Northside Baptist Church in Weatherford.

She is survived by her husband James Shannon Coffee. Her sisters, Shirli Anne Hutson and husband Louie, Sue Antoinette Chomo, and brother William Grant (Bill) Zaczek and wife Anne, and her special Aunt Ruth Johnson; her sons William Clinton Coffee and wife Jenny, Gregory Alan Coffee and wife Mandy; daughters Elizabeth Anne Head and husband Matthew, Mary Rebecca Masters and husband Jacob; grandchildren, Susan Lea Williamson, John Douglas Coffee (JD), Cooper Alan Coffee, Morgan Lindsay Head, Madison Leigh Head, Hayden Paul Head, Kaleb Alexander Blankenship, Kallie Grace Blankenship; great grandchildren, Walker Colt Williamson, Piper Rose Williamson, Marjorie Kate (Emmie Kate) Williamson, Whitt Paul Coffee, Webb Bass Coffee.

“One Generation shall praise thy works to another and shall declare thy mighty acts.” Psalms 145:4

Funeral Services will be held Tuesday May 17th at 10:00 AM at Northside Baptist Church in Weatherford Texas, with burial to follow for immediate family at Mt. Olivet cemetery in Fort Worth, Texas.

Our beloved Grams is in eternal glory… Though our hearts mourn the loss of the matriarch of our family, we rejoice in her new eternal life. Our hearts are happy with her reunion of loved ones that have passed before her. Her parents, her in-laws who she considered her own, but mostly we rejoice that she is with her third born, a son, James Paul, who she never even held or saw. Grams, tell him we love him, and that we all have felt that moment when we are all together, but we look around and think “there is someone missing”. We might not be able to reach out and physically embrace our Grams now or see her physical body, but the reminders of her abound.

When we see my father, we see the love that they shared. Grams brought out the gentle kindness and softness in a big and determined man. She worked and sacrificed to ensure our family not only survived but flourished. We see the template of what the love of two people can overcome. Grams, your children thank you for showing us daily what this means.

To her oldest son Clint, “Willy”, she imparted the gift of wisdom. Our Grams never needed, cared, or desired for higher education. Yet how many times a day did we call her, even up to the last days, as 40- and 50-year-old children asking, “Grams, what should I do?” She was very rarely wrong. Her guidance was always soft to the ears, gentle in its persuasion, and calming to the spirit. We will miss that. Thank you for showing Clint and bestowing that important role in our family.

To her second son, Greg, “Gfer”, she left a soft heart. Sometimes not a very manly trait that may appear as weakness to some. I will wear it as a badge of honor, because it is what my mother gave and nurtured in me. I will follow her guide and always put my family’s feelings in the forefront. I will cry when we are sad, I will empathize in our struggles, I will rejoice in our victories and probably cry again. Mom, that is you in me and I will cherish and continue to nurture that part of me. Thank you for my gift.

To her oldest daughter, Elizabeth, ”Gus”, she gave a fierceness, and absolute ferociousness to protect the family at all costs. Grams, when needed, would defend her tribe to no ends, from any and all attacks from the enemy whether it be physical or spiritual. You were not going to defeat Grams. Unbreakable, unbendable, prayer warrior, a fortress of stone to protect her family. On the exact opposite side, Grams gifted Elizabeth with her wit, her humor, her laughing soul, and her lightheartedness, a very important part of the strong glue that holds our family together. Our Grams made sure that she trained and left with us a happy, laughing warrior. Thank you, mighty little Gramsy, for nurturing Elizabeth to battle for our family.

To her youngest daughter, Rebecca, “Bo”, Grams instilled the spirit of nurturing. Of all the gifts to her children, this one was not as much “given” as it was a reflection of Grams – twins, you might say. Grams’ caring and ability to ease our physical, spiritual and mental hurts were the cornerstones of the foundation she laid. Though Grams did not have a medical degree or even a stethoscope, her “nursing” and nurturing skills could fill a medical journal. Rebecca continues on her mother’s path of “healing” the sick with love, kindness, and knowledge. It is easy to see our mother standing alongside Rebecca as she tends to the hurt in people inside and outside hospital walls, ministering to them both physically and spiritually.

Grams left her presence and touch in every fiber of our being. Most importantly, she left the all-encompassing gift of pure, unceasing Christian love, to our entire family.

Grams, we love you dearly and miss you. Thank you for your legacy and your beautiful joyous soul. We have got it from here because you prepared us and molded us. Our hearts leap at the thought that we will be together again, reunited, whole with nothing but eternity to look forward to.

With all our Love,
Your Children
